What has happened to me? I enjoyed an Olsen Twins movie!
31 December 2018 | by cricketbatSee all my reviews

I was prepared to hate this movie, but I didn't. In fact, I kind of liked it. This variation on the Parent Trap storyline kept me engaged and, dare I say, entertained. I even found myself laughing at some of the cheesy jokes. What has happened to me? I enjoyed an Olsen Twins movie!
